Location

How to find me!

My private practice office is located right off the traffic circle in downtown Pittsboro. See location photos below. I am directly above Blue Dot Coffee. Come through the door, up the stairs (23 stairs; no elevator is available) and enter my waiting area, on the left.

 

Please note: If the sign on my door says "In Session," please take a seat and I will be with you soon. If it says "Welcome," please knock to enter.
